Chances are you’ve seen or heard outdoor cats and wondered who they belong to or how to help them. Some cats are pets who are allowed to roam outdoors by their guardians; others are community (feral and stray) cats who exist outdoors through no fault of their own. The good news is that you can make a big difference when it comes to helping community cats.

Ready, Set, Go!

If you’re out and about and are approached by a friendly unfamiliar cat, you may be tempted to pick him up and confine him in your bathroom or laundry room while you try to find his guardian. You may even think about taking him to the local animal shelter, but not so fast!

Although we’d like pet cats to be kept safely indoors, some guardians allow their cats to roam. These semi-outdoor cats may then become lost. With all the cats in shelters, for whom very few guardians come looking, we don’t want to separate cats from their homes. If a cat looks well cared for, they are more likely to return home without your help. If they do hang around, chat with your neighbors or post signs to see if you can find their family.

There are unowned stray cats who may also be friendly and approach you for food or attention. Some may be too scared to let you get close at first. These cats may be abandoned pet cats and not look well cared for if they’ve been on their own for a while.They may have never had a home but lived in a place, such as a community garden, where they were cared for by people. They will usually eat immediately if you offer them food. Feral cats are afraid of people and usually run if approached. They will not allow you to touch them and you shouldn’t try because it can endanger you or the cat. They’ll only eat food you’ve provided after you’ve moved away. A cat is probably feral if he’s still unapproachable after several days of feeding.

Give a Helping Hand

If you think a cat is lost, contact your local animal care and control agency, humane society or cat rescue group. The heartbroken guardian may have filed a lost cat report that is a match.

If you can safely get the cat into some sort of a secure carrier, you can take him to a veterinarian or animal shelter to be scanned for a microchip, which may then lead you to an guardian. If you’re unable to locate a guardian and the cat is healthy, it’s best to return him to his territory and try to find out if someone is feeding him. Many people feed community cats and some trap, neuter and return (TNR) them to reduce their numbers.

Find a group as soon as possible that does TNR to help you before you’re overwhelmed with kittens.

You can also help a local TNR organization by volunteering to be a cat caretaker or kitten foster home, building shelters, or advocating for community cats. Whatever your time, skills and interest allow, just do it!

Go Above and Beyond

If there’s no local group helping community cats, you can TNR the cats! You’ll find lots of great information to get the skills and confidence you need in the Neighborhood Cats TNR Handbook.

Once you’ve TNRed a colony of cats, you may want to start your own TNR program or try to convince your local shelter or animal care and control agency to adopt community cat-friendly policies. Perhaps your local ordinances don’t allow TNR or they contain language that makes it difficult for individuals to help cats.

You can advocate for community cats even if you’ve never done it before. There are lots of resources, such as The Humane Society of the United States’ Lobbying 101 for Cat Advocates, to help you be the most effective advocate possible. You can also check out “Managing Community Cats: A Guide for Municipal Leaders,” which can be purchased in print form or downloaded for free. Together, we can make a difference for these cats.

Please join the community cat army, speak up and do something!

Aww. Silly, foolish little tnr (supposed) researcher got offended by the \'coward\' comment made by a complete stranger over the internet! Yet you have no problem dishing far more creative insults such as "sorry-aššed bible-home-schooled selves, moronic and phenomenally ignorant imbeciles JUST LIKE YOU, Toxoplasma gondii brain-damaged fools" just to name a few! Since you\'re so quick to make assumptions on everyone\'s education level among your other crazy ravings, I\'m going to go ahead and assume that you would probably never say some of the insulting things you\'ve said here to anyone\'s face in real life! Just like a ... Dare I say.... Coward??? :) You\'d probably get your geeky little ass kicked!! So Easy to hide behind a computer screen isn\'t it! And since you\'re so passionate on this subject that you seem to be the only person who comes here every day, and posts numerous novel-comments full of hate and insults, why don\'t you take your opinion to a more important source? Ya know, instead of the comments section of an article on a \'green\' site! Don\'t you realize that offending random people is not going to get them to agree with you here?! Don\'t you realize that your hateful extremist kind is just as loony as the crazy cat people?! Seems like you just enjoy arguing with strangers and it getting nowhere! And as far as your defense of \'Cats can and will wipe out whole ecosystems -- animal and plant\', why don\'t You look in the mirror! We do that too, everywhere we go! A trait both species share! Look it up, researcher! :)

Not offended in the least. I was merely correcting your sorry-assed mommy\'s-rental-basement-dwelling ignorance-is-bliss sorry-excuse for a self.

While it is true that overpopulation of humans is the #1 problem that we and all other species face today (humans are a classified as a "weedy species", but they ARE NOT an "invasive species", please educate your sorry-aššed bible-home-schooled selves); this still doesn\'t excuse all the responsible, wise, and intelligent people from stopping all the ecological disasters caused by those phenomenally stupid and criminally negligent people who should have never been born in the very first place. (You know, moronic and phenomenally ignorant imbeciles JUST LIKE YOU who don\'t even have clue-one on how the natural world works.)

Cats are a man-made (through selective breeding) invasive species. And as such, cats being a product of man, are no less of a man-made environmental disaster than any oil-spill, radiation-fallout, chemical-spill, or other environmental disaster _caused_by_man_. THESE MAN-MADE CATS ARE PURELY AN ACTIVITY OF HUMANS AND ARE THE #1 MAN-MADE CAUSE OF DESTRUCTION TO NATIVE WILDLIFE EVERYWHERE ON EARTH. Can\'t you Toxoplasma gondii brain-damaged fools get that through your heads yet? Cats are NOT exempt from being removed from every natural environment, wherever and whenever they are found away from supervised confinement. Just as you would destroy Burmese Pythons and African Cichlids in every habitat where they exist in N. America. They started out as pets too. Many of our destructive invasive species pests started out as PETS discarded by criminally-irresponsible humans. Guess what happens to all those other non-native pets that became destructive invasive species? They are destroyed on-site by any means possible -- no questions asked -- none required.

Cats are even worse than a multi-continent-sized oil-spill. They not only kill off rare marine-mammals along all coastlines; seals, otters, whales, manatees and river-otters (just as oil-spills do) from run-off from the land carrying cats\' Toxoplasma gondii parasites, they also destroy the complete food-chain in every ecosystem where cats are found. From smallest of prey that is gutted and skinned alive, wasted for cats\' tortured play-toys, up to the top predators -- starved to death from cats destroying their ONLY foods. (Precisely what cats caused on my own lands not long ago.) They destroy everything that moves. They will even destroy native vegetation by destroying those animals that are pollinators or act as seed dispersers for those plants (as many rodent and bird species do) or those acting as plants\' pest-control. Cats can and will wipe out whole ecosystems -- animal and plant.

Cats need to disappear from all natural habitats PERMANENTLY, eventually, somehow. And the sooner the better. They are breeding out of control at an exponential rate. The reason for "sooner the better" is that you can only hope you can halt the problem before it is beyond the reach of any method you eventually choose. Luckily, I caught the problem in time where I live -- by humanely shooting and burying every last cat I saw, hundreds, collared or not. (Collared strays are the very source of every last feral cat. If you don\'t destroy all stray collared cats too then you have done absolutely nothing to solve the problem.)

It seems nobody else is faring as well. Their time is being wasted by cat-lickers stopping them from doing the right thing. Asking or listening to any deranged invasive-species advocate for advice on how to clean up the ecological disaster that they created and are hellbent on perpetuating is about as useful as asking your local career thieves for their advice and help to hide your valuables from their daily motives and activities. Ignore anything they might say and you too will solve the problem where you live. People like that ARE the problem, they cannot be part of the solution. The very moment that cat-lickers, who cause the problem, are cut from the solution-equation it instantly solves itself.

It worked 100% where I live. I\'ve not seen even ONE cat for five years now after shooting and burying hundreds of these disease-invested invasive-species vermin. The eradication was that complete and effective. (Also totally disproving that cat-lickers\' deceptive and manipulative "vacuum effect" lie and myth.) Everyone else has only to follow what worked where I live to prove it to themselves now. A centuries\'-old cat problem solved in only 2 seasons of their time. And if you are lucky enough to get ammo on a close-out sale, as I did (5,000 rounds of .22s for only $15), you too can accomplish all this at the "exorbitant cost" of only THREE CATS PER PENNY! 1/3rd-cent PER CAT! Total cost less than the price of a couple cups of coffee for a problem of hundreds of cats. Each cat vaccinated against ALL of their 3dozen+ deadly zoonotic diseases (for which some of the most deadly that cats spread don\'t even have vaccines against them and are therefor listed as bio-terrorism agents), each cat sterilized so they can no-longer reproduce, and each cat also given a permanent "loving furever home" (2-3 ft. under) so they can no longer destroy anymore of our valuable native wildlife. A TOTAL solution affordable to anyone, any size of community! With no further costs incurred by ANYONE EVER AGAIN.

If none of you let your disease-infested invasive-species vermin illegally roam free then none of that would happen, now would it. Your fault!

Either finally grow-up into respectable and responsible humans who actually care about their 100%-expendable pets, or keep getting your cats shot and poisoned to death. What will it be?

Love \'em or lose \'em!

Bottom line: If you don\'t want to take care of your cat in the manner that YOU see fit, then I guarantee you that I WILL take care of your cat in the manner that I see fit -- ONE TIME. And it only takes one time. See one, shoot one, A.S.A.P. Simple as that. (I lost count after 500.)

YOUR CHOICE!

If your cat gets hurt or dies, NO MATTER HOW YOUR CAT GETS HURT OR DIES, that\'s ***YOUR*** ***FAULT***. Make NO mistake about that. And you can be charged with all laws that clearly define animal-neglect, animal-abandonment, and animal-endangerment -- not to mention every last national and international invasive-species law and environmental-protection-act on earth.

Do you actually love your vermin? Or are you just using it as a highly expendable animal-sacrifice to manipulate everyone? I guess we\'ll find out when your piece-of-shîť vermin never comes home.

PSA: The time is now .... Half-Past Kill-Kitty O\'Clock .... do you know where your piece-of-shîť, disease-infested, invasive species, ecological disaster, vermin cat is? If not, grab a shovel and I\'ll show you where its new "loving furever-home" is now.

Oh, one other important thing:

I\'m not here to convince you nor anyone else of anything. You planet-destroying fools will NEVER change who are and what you are doing. I learned that lesson the hard way, at the loss of countless thousands of native animals on my lands that were tortured to death by your cats. 15 years of careful and considerate negotiations, education, and then eventually even threatening them with the law -- NOTHING MATTERS TO CAT-LICKERS LIKE YOU, BUT YOURSELVES AND HOW YOU CAN USE YOUR 100%-DISPOSABLE CATS TO MANIPULATE EVERYONE, USING YOUR VERMIN CATS LIKE LITTLE ANIMAL-SACRIFICES TO GET YOUR WAY. (Even if only just for attention online because you are that desperate for attention from ANY human in your lives now. No humans want to be around you.)

Dance, mine little puppet, dance!

See, I only use any and all online cat-lickers as my little ignorant show-\'n-tell puppets now. To prove to everyone in the world, beyond any doubt left in the known universe, that no matter how much we try to educate, reason with, beg with, plead with, or argue with you (I tried those failed method for 15 years with all the cat-lickers where I live, I learned my lesson); that it will do absolutely NOTHING toward solving the worldwide ecological disaster that YOU created and are hellbent on perpetuating with your vermin piece-of-shîť cats. The ONLY thing that works is ignoring every last thing that you cat-licking morons spew to others, and then giving back to you the EXACT SAME amount of respect and consideration as you have shown and given to ALL other life on earth -- ABSOLUTELY NONE.

We just destroy every last one of your free-roaming cats. Then and only then will the problem that YOU created be solved. 15 years of non-productive arguing with cat-lickers, or 2 seasons of shooting and burying cats -- the latter actually works. How much is an hour of your life worth to you and where will you spend it to solve the problem the most? People (and I use that word generously) like you ARE the problem, you cannot be ANY part of the solution. The very moment that cat-lickers like you, who cause the problem, are cut from the solution-equation it instantly solves itself.

You only use your cats like little animal sacrifices to try to control and manipulate everyone in the world around you (even just for trolling for attention online). You manipulative and inhumane cat-licking freaks don\'t give one shîť how any cat dies or you wouldn\'t let your vermin roam free in the very first place. This is why you don\'t give one damn if your cats get ran over by cars, attacked by other cats or animals, or die any other way. And if VERY VERY LUCKY your free-roaming cat will be humanely shot-to-death -- for that is by-far the MOST humane death that any of your stray cats will ever hope to have.

This really isn\'t about cats at all. You only use your cats to try to control and ruin everyone else\'s lives on the planet, animal and human -- most commonly because you hate everyone and everyone in the world has rejected you. Little self-victimization control-freaks, nothing more than that. Sociopaths and psychopaths to your very cores.

Once your furry little tools to manipulate everyone are no-more, you don\'t have even 1 of 4 legs to stand on -- about anything. Nothing to complain about. Nothing to manipulate others with anymore.

GAME OVER!

Oh, and to address your inane comment about my not being able to say anything I type online to a person\'s face? Ask all the cat-licking neighbors whose hundreds of cats were shot dead and buried what I told them to their faces during the last year of 15-years of "negotiations" with them. LOL

I finally warned all my neighbors that ALL their cats were going to be shot to death if they didn\'t stop letting them kill all the wildlife on my lands. Then when I finally brought out my rifle to let them know I wasn\'t warning anymore, I was doing; a few of them called the sheriff. THAT was going to stop me! When he arrived the sheriff told me, right in front of them, that I should just start shooting their cats and don\'t stop until every last one of their cats on my lands was permanently gone -- that I have every last legal-right in the world to do so. Then he just walked away. That shut them up.

You should have seen the looks on their faces! ROFLMAO! Priceless! But more importantly, actually shooting every last one of hundreds of their cats finally shut them up -- permanently. What was even more strange about you pathetic sociopathic cat-lickers; as I was shooting all their cats over a 2-season period of time, they adopted even MORE cats to let roam free for me to shoot. Even as they wandered up and down the roads every evening calling out the names of their favorite ones that they already knew had been shot to death. Talk about brain-damaged imbeciles. This is why it took a full 2 seasons. Yes, you cat-lickers are just this phenomenally stupid, disrespectful to ALL life, and CLINICALLY INSANE. Are YOU going to be that phenomenally stupid and insane? They lost HUNDREDS of cats, how many will you and all your cat-licking friends have to lose permanently before you learn your much-deserved well-earned lessons at long last? I\'ve not heard even one peep out of these criminally negligent cat-licking cretins ever since I started shooting their cats and destroyed every last one of hundreds of their cats FIVE YEARS AGO. So many problems solved! Not only their cats, but them too -- they all finally became respectable people for once in their terminally useless lives. If that\'s what it\'ll take to turn you into one too, then I say "Bye-Bye Kitty! BANG! BANG!"

Wow I see a lot of butthurt comments about cats destroying wildlife. Yet did you know that the biggest contributor to habitat destruction is... Wait for it... ***HUMANS***!!! The reason feral cats have become a problem is because irresponsible pet owners - yes, PEOPLE! Like you and me! - have these animals and don\'t get them fixed, resulting in them breeding and creating colonies! Yep, people have allowed this problem to get out of control! House pets need to be fixed. In other countries (and probably even in some parts of the US) they have problems with feral dogs the same way we do with cats (yep, its not Just cats everyone)! Some lunatics even feed vultures until their street is full of them, creating another animal nuisance! It all comes back to people screwing shit up and blaming something/someone/everything else! It\'s all we\'re good at! It sounds like the angry anti-cat commenters are in denial that this problem was created by their own species, and looking for an excuse to kill something that they won\'t have to do time for. Just like a good proper coward does! :) You want to know how to solve the real problem though? Since you cat-haters are so tough and eager to kill, why not grow some balls and start with the source - irresponsible pet owners!

And as for your moronic comment about who is and is not a "coward" ....

The true coward is the person who is so spineless and heartless that they don\'t even have the strength of heart to destroy an unwanted cat. Instead, they throw it out into the streets, hoping like hell that they\'ll never have to see how their cat heinously suffered to death due to their own lack of values and criminally-irresponsible behaviors. As well as all the thousands of native animals that your cat tortures to death for its play-toys.

If you want to see a true animal-torturing coward, you need look no further than your nearest mirror.

Here\'s a quick and simple eye-opener for these self-deceptive and sociopathic cat-lickers who wish that all humans would die instead of their diseased vermin invasive-species cats. And this is just for ONE of their cats 3dozen+ deadly zoonotic diseases they are spreading to all humans today. (Many of which are even listed as bio-terrorism agents because there are no vaccines available for them, like Tularemia and "The Black Death" the plague, being spread by people\'s cats this time around.)

Just copy and paste this search-string into Google, exactly as-is: (cat OR cats) (attack OR attacks OR attacked) (rabies OR rabid)

You get approximately 782,000 hits.

Thanks to these criminal cat-lickers and their free-roaming cats you are FOUR TIMES MORE LIKELY TO CONTRACT RABIES FROM *ANY* CAT THAN *ANY* OTHER DOMESTICATED ANIMAL TODAY.

This is why even the CDC has issued warnings to cease and desist with these illegal and FAILED TNR practices and programs, anywhere and everywhere. http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/zph.12070/abstract

If you add in their multimillion-dollar money-making scam by exploiting all the animals they torture to death with TNR and then parade suffering animals in the media for donations to their bank-accounts, and how they use cyber-stalking and cyber-bullying tactics to get TNR programs into all the communities where it exists today; you even gotchyerself a good ol\' case of "Racketeering". They\'re just ripe for picking by The Feds now. I hope they ALL rot in prison -- FOR LIFE!

You forgot to add, "And take every last one of their vermin cats with them!"

In fact, I\'ve often suggested this in the past. Just move all cat-lickers and their cats to any island where their cats have already made all the native wildlife extinct. Preferably to one of the southernmost or northernmost latitudes where their cats can still barely thrive. Then leave them with nothing else to see how well-balanced of an ecosystem they can get that way to survive on their own. They and their cats would all resort to cannibalism in less than 1 year. I guarantee you of that. Problem solved! And they all get to learn a valuable lesson in how nature works as well. :-)

Speaking of ignorance, here\'s just how phenomenally astounding your own ignorance is:

See if your "schoolin\'" can "figger" this one out:

Here\'s how you can make any cat-licking, facts-twisting, propaganda-spewing fool reveal just how absurd, hypocritical, ignorant, stupid, and ludicrous ALL their beliefs are; all with just ONE simple question. Ask them:

"If you believe that these man-made (through selective-breeding), environment destroying, deadly-disease infested, pestilent, invasive-species vermin cats are a natural part of the environment and belong out in nature; then why are you even bothering to sterilize them?"

Blatantly ignorant hypocrite much?

Your agreement to sterilize your domesticated cats is your very agreement that they don\'t even belong there in the very first place. Is this too difficult for you to comprehend? Is your 3rd-grade bible-home-schooling, replete with your bambi-cartoon-sing-along curricula, now failing you? Must be.

emcee, you astoundingly ignorant moron and buffoon. Dogs are contained BY LAW because they are a domesticated species. NO domesticated species are allowed to roam free, even livestock must be under control of a herdsman or under confinement of the land-owner. All those other animals are NATIVE SPECIES where they live. Please go get at least a high-school freshman\'s level of education in matters of biology and ecology. You\'re just making a fool of your stupid and ignorant self by even asking questions like that.

And your blatant lie and myth about cats being good rodent control has been disproved on every island where cats were imported to take care of the imported rodents. Hundreds of years later and there\'s nothing but a thriving population of cats and rodents -- all the native wildlife on those islands now either extinct or on the brink of extinction -- even those native species which are better rodent predators than cats (such as many reptiles and shrews which destroy rodents right in their nests), the cats having destroyed them directly or indirectly.

The rodents reproduce in burrows and holes out of the reach of cats, where they are happy to reproduce forever to entertain cats the rest of their lives, and make your own lives miserable, on into infinity. On top of that, when cats infect rodents with cat\'s Toxoplasma gondii parasite, this hijacks the minds of rodents to make the rodents attracted to where cats urinate. http://scitizen.com/neuroscience/parasite-hijacks-the-mind-of-its-host_a-23-509.html

Cats actually attract disease-carrying rodents to where cats are. The cats then contract these diseases on contact with, or being in proximity to, these rodents. Like "The Black Death", the plague, that is now being transmitted to humans in N. America directly from cats that have contracted it from rodents. Yes, "The Black Death" (the plague) is alive and well today and being spread by people\'s cats this time around. Totally disproving that oft-spewed LIE about having more cats in Europe could have prevented the plague -- more cats would have made it far far worse. Many people have already died from cat-transmitted plague in the USA in the last 2-3 decades; all three forms of it transmitted by CATS -- septicemic, bubonic, and pneumonic. For a fun read, one of hundreds of cases, Cat-Transmitted Fatal Pneumonic Plague -- http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8059908

http://www.abcd-vets.org/Guidelines/Pages/EN-Other-Zoonoses-Feline-Plague.aspx
"Recommendations to avoid zoonotic transmission: Cats are considered the most important domestic animal involved in plague transmission to humans, and in endemic areas, outdoor cats may transmit the infection to their owners or to persons caring for sick cats (veterinarians and veterinary nurses)."

Cats attracting these adult rodents right to them further increasing the cat/rodent/disease density of this happy predator/prey balance. It has been documented many many times. The more cats you have the more rodents and diseases you get. I even proved this to myself when having to rid my lands of hundreds of these vermin cats by shooting and burying every last one of them. A rodent problem started to appear about the same time the cats started to show up, 15 years of it. Then all rodent problems disappeared after every last cat was shot-dead and safely disposed of. All the better NATIVE rodent predators moved back into the area after the cats were dead and gone. Not seen one cat anywhere nor had even one rodent in the house in five years now. (So much for their manipulative, deceptive, and outright lie of the mythical "vacuum effect" too.)

Cats DO NOT get rid of rodents. I don\'t care how many centuries that fools will claim that cats keep rodents in-check, they\'ll still be wrong all these centuries. Civilizations of humans have come and gone in great cities like Egypt, yet their cats and rodents remain in even greater pestilent numbers.

No cat population anywhere has ever been able to control rodents effectively. But native predators can -- easily.

They just keep deceiving their astoundingly ignorant selves.

The 100% effective and PERMANENT SOLUTION. Guaranteed. Tested and approved.

You will find that it is 100% ineffective to try to discuss this with any cat-advocate. Do what I did after 15 years of trying to reason-with and educate the ineducable (at the loss of THOUSANDS of native animals that their cats tortured to death on my lands). Ignore every last thing that every last cat-advocate might ever say and you too will solve a centuries\' old problem PERMANENTLY in less than 2 seasons of your time, for a cost of only $0.003 (1/3-penny) to $0.04 per cat. Cat-advocates ARE the problem, they can\'t be any part of the solution. If you include them in the solution then YOU WILL FAIL. They now deserve and require the EXACT same amount of respect and consideration as they have shown and given to every other life on this planet, animal and human included, that being -- ABSOLUTELY NONE. Then and only then will you solve this global ecological disaster that they created and are hellbent on perpetuating.

No trapping program in the world has been able to catch-up to cats\' breeding rates, this is precisely why Trap & Kill failed as well as Trap, Neuter, Re-abandon (TNR) is an even bigger failure. Actively and aggressively hunting them down, employing "Hunted to Extinction" methods, is the ONLY way to get ahead of and stay ahead of cats\' breeding rates, their ability to out-adapt to any trapping method used, and also the rates at which criminally-irresponsible cat-lickers let more invasive-species vermin cats be born and dumped illegally outdoors.

Licensing and laws do nothing to curb the problem. If cats are required to be licensed then these lying, deceitful, manipulative, and conniving cat-lickers just stop putting collars on their cats; as they did by me. And they won\'t even bother getting them micro-chipped, especially not that. They want absolutely nothing that can hold them legally accountable for their actions and the actions of their cats. We\'re not talking about the topmost responsible citizens of the world, you know. They don\'t want that responsibility of what they and their cats have done coming back on them. If they had even one iota of a sense of responsibility and respect for all other lives on this planet we wouldn\'t even be having these discussions.

Any non-native cat that is allowed to illegally hunt our native wildlife where I live then in turn gets hunted until dead. No delays, no excuses, NO EXCEPTIONS. That\'s the very best way to keep these invasive species vermin from destroying any more native wildlife or spreading any more of their 3dozen+ deadly diseases to all other animals and humans. They had annihilated all the wildlife on my lands for 15 years, until on advice of the Sheriff I shot and buried every last one of hundreds of their vermin cats for them (AS-IS THE LEGAL RIGHT OF EVERY LAND-OWNER). Collared or not -- for you MUST destroy ALL stray collared cats as well, they are the very source of every last feral cat. If you don\'t destroy them too then you have done NOTHING to solve the feral cat problem. Guaranteed. All the cat-lickers by me told me for over a decade that all their "pet" cats were sterilized. But upon inspection during shooting and burying hundreds of them, NOT ONE of their cats was sterilized. Cat-advocates and cat-owners who let cats roam free are manipulative and deceptive LIARS -- one and all.

I live near Yosemite we had a huge feral problem until my neighbors and I took matters into our own hands trapping and shooting them. These idiot TNR cat lovers do not care at all about the wildlife these feral cats wipeout. I moved into this area for the wildlife, not to see 5-6 feral cat on my property every day. Finally after ten years we are getting the problem under control

Good going "google_user_*". That\'s how I solved it where I live too. But don\'t depend on trapping. Using slow and inefficient trapping methods is what got us into this mess. If you had read my lengthy posts (no small task), you\'ll find out that cats can out-breed and out-adapt to any trapping method known to man. This is why we MUST depend on hunted-to-extinction methods now. My lands have been 100% cat-free for over five years now.

If you truly care about the well-being of animals, then destroying free-roaming cats is the most humane thing to do of all options available (even for the cats themselves).

Destroy any one invasive-species cat = save the lives of thousands of native animals. That\'s the TRUE suffering-animal equation. Saving them from being tortured to death by being disemboweled-alive or skinned-alive and left to suffer to death, or their offspring left to starve to death after the parents are killed or after cats have destroyed all of their ONLY food-sources -- and all done to NATIVE animals that actually belong here by just ONE invasive-species cat.

Would you like me to tell you in grisly detail about the thousands of poor suffering animals on my lands, their screeches drawing my attention every day, my having to drive-off a cat that just attacked it, and then stomping that poor animal to death with my own boot to hush its torment caused by YOUR cats? This was a daily occurrence for nearly 2 decades. My driveways used to be lined with the senseless writhing and screeching carnage of YOUR cats\' play-toys every morning. Perhaps you need to feel and hear the sound of a small animal\'s skull pop beneath your own foot for 2 decades, every day, until you "get it". People (if I can use that term) like you disgust me. Why senseless and useless animal-torturing things like you were ever even born is a mystery to me. You deserve to die just as inhumanely as you let all your cats torture all other animals to death -- by being gutted-live or skinned-alive, then your hoping like heII that something will come along to put you out of your misery too. But it won\'t be me who saves you from your much-deserved and well-earned karmic death. I wouldn\'t even risk dirtying my boots with your unused gray-matter -- I\'d just keep on walking, to a far far better day and let you scream yourself to death.

If you want to end the slow torturous deaths of thousands of animals, you must begin with destroying any one free-roaming cat, NO MATTER HOW YOU HAVE-TO ACCOMPLISH THAT.

I saved countless THOUSANDS of animals from suffering to death, and the guaranteed continuation of thousands of beneficial and admirable animal species to live healthy and full lives, animals upon which our very own lives depend. (Some native predators that I even hand-raised from certain demise. The few remaining native predators on my lands that hadn\'t already been starved to death by an infestation of cats.) It\'s called "being a responsible steward of the land". Time to grow-up into a responsible adult with a spine and a real heart and get away from your bambi-cartoon curricula and pavement-brained ignorance.

All NATIVE wildlife on my lands is now returning to normal, it rebounded faster than I could have ever hoped for. I estimate about 1 returning or 1 never-seen-before native species arrived on my land PER DAY for 5 years since every last cat is gone. That\'s a LOT of species that cats destroyed or starved to death during their 15 years here. Nature is once again back in balance, as it was, and as it should be. Native predators are no longer starving to death due to cats destroying their only food sources. No countless thousands of prey-specie animals being tortured to death for disemboweled and skinned-alive twitching play-toys for vermin cats. No longer are these invasive species cats spreading their 3dozen+ deadly zoonotic diseases to all animals and humans. AND I no longer have any rodent problem. Owls returned, as did the hawks, fox, raccoons, shrikes, and opossum and other NATIVE predators that get rid of rodents the RIGHT WAY, without attracting more of them with cats\' T. gondii brain-hijacking parasite. The most valuable of all are the tiny 1.75-inch Masked Shrew, which evolved a poisonous bite specifically for preying on rodents at their very source, in the burrows right where rodents breed. Cats ALWAYS destroy these tiny David vs. Goliath marvels first, thus ensuring an endless supply of rodents to entertain the cats and your own stupid lives on into infinity.

I get to hear owls hooting again every night, a sound I had not heard for 15 years because cats had destroyed all their visible/attainable food sources. One so tame it sits on a branch about 10 ft. from my door. It caught a vole I had disturbed one time walking through my yard, the owl landing nearly between my feet to capture the vole. It just looking straight-up at me all proud about its catch. I had to step over that owl to let it continue on in its proud moment. Hawks soar over my trees again. Chipmunks treat me to a chipmunk-chorus most every calm summer evening again, another sound I had not heard for 15 years. (Ever hear that sound? It sounds like a melodic wooden wind-chime coming from every direction in the forest as they call to each other, each clucking with their own unique note of their chorus before bedding-down. It\'s an astounding experience to hear it just once in your life but I get to hear it most every calm warm day before sunset, sometimes in calm late mornings too before they take their noon nap.) A family of Gray Fox (one of the most beneficial native animals to grace the land) made a den near my home. I often see them bringing a clownish kit or two along with to patrol my yard for any edibles. Birds I had never seen in my life before now nest here. 2 of the species are warblers listed in the top-10-songbirds of the world. What an amazing sound to awaken to during warm months. I wasn\'t a birder before but these amazing animals are now convincing me otherwise.

The lifelong rewards for destroying and disposing of every last one of these pestilent invasive-species vermin cats on your lands are priceless and immeasurable.

I now feel nothing but pity for anyone who has cats around them. They have made their own lives, and the lives of all others around them, dismally bereft and empty and they don\'t even realize it.

Ooops, google_user, ignore those lines about YOUR cats in my reply above. That was the one I authored to shove in the faces of useless cat-lickers to show them how much better ALL life is without their cats. :-)

If you live where its not legal to use firearms (areas zoned as "residential") then check into 700-1200fps air-rifles and round-nosed vermin-pellets. Many of the new ones come with their own sound-suppressor designs built-in, specifically designed for shooting vermin cats in urban areas, the demand is that great. Just remember, shoot-to-kill is a perfectly legal way to rid your homes and lands of these diseased vermin cats. Shoot-to-maim is animal cruelty, and rightly so, all hunters know this. Don\'t let them parade another illegal shoot-to-maim case in the media to exploit yet another suffering cat for donations for themselves. They torture enough cats to death with their TNR programs for that and make $millions by doing so. (Check out Better Business Bureau\'s findings of "Alley Cat All Lies" for one example of how to become a multimillionaire by torturing stray cats to death by letting them roam free. http://web.archive.org/web/20131013073823/http://www.bbb.org/charity-reviews/national/animal-protection/alley-cat-allies-in-bethesda-md-107/financial They can\'t become millionaires if they euthanize them first! No, they need dead and suffering cats in all the streets of the world so when they find them dying of TNR "attrition" they can further exploit dead and injured cats for massive donations to their own bank-accounts. You too can become a deceptive, manipulative, and morally reprehensible $multimillionaire by following this animal-torturing and cyber-bullying business-model invented by Becky Robinson!)

Then there\'s always the "SSS and TDSS Cat Management Programs" that are exploding in popularity worldwide: Shoot, Shovel, & Shut-Up; or Trap, Drown, Shovel, & Shut-Up. Both methods are legal on every square foot of this earth. No local ordinances were violated if it never happened. In fact, most law-enforcement agencies prefer that you use either of those two methods so that these criminally-negligent cat-lickers don\'t cause even more problems for your community than they already have with their disease-infested vermin. As we ALL know, the only thing worse than having feral cats is drawing feral-cat-lickers (criminally irresponsible cat-hoarders) right to your door. They will do everything possible to destroy your life even further than they already have with their cats if they find out you are even thinking about destroying their vermin for them. Cat-lickers delusionally believe that any land on which a cat has stepped-foot is their own property and they can manipulate and control the owners and all laws on it. There are dozens of their cyber-stalking and cyber-bullying attacks on individuals, businesses, whole towns, and even corporations on a weekly basis. One time so bad that they even drove a loving veterinarian to suicide, and she only tried to save the life of one of their outdoor hoarded TNR cats. ( http://banvetabuse.blogspot.co.uk/2014_03_01_archive.html ) They will even send death-threats to Congressmen and their families. Google for: Oda Lawmakers Shun Security Threats

Here too is a good example of what will happen should even one of their TNR cats get ran-over by a car (or dies from any other form of their "loving and humane attrition") near your place of business or your home: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=747875778604304&set=o.37899252087 And here\'s what really happened: http://www.wtov9.com/news/features/top-stories/stories/alleged-animal-abuse-investigated-weirton-5308.shtml Someone not even associated with this business ran-over one of their free-roaming cats by accident. The fun part of this cyber-bullying attack (which, luckily the business-owners had excellent lawyers and were able to get most of their cyber-attack sites shut-down fast in one day, and sue the piśś out of anyone involved), is that the group behind it all and supported by Alley-Cat-ALL-LIES (where I found the above facebook link still available) even admitted that those photos were from Europe over three years ago, another from China six years ago. http://www.chinasmack.com/2009/pictures/kittens-found-abused-dead-mother-kunming.html They just paste dead-cat photos around whatever business they want to destroy where any of their TNR cats get ran-over. Isn\'t TNR GREAT!! LOL

This is precisely why everyone is learning to destroy all cats on their properties as quickly and quietly as possible. Telling nobody beforehand about any cats even being there. Long before these psychotic cyber-bullying cat-licker sociopaths and psychopaths get wind of the cats. Shoot (or trap & drown) cats first -- tell no-one later. The only thing worse than feral cats are feral cat-lickers. You can legally shoot the former, not the latter. You need to pay lawyers and courts to get rid of the latter. THEN you can get rid of their cats. And the sad part is, that\'s EXACTLY what happens, each and every time. People are wising-up. If ANY cats are around they destroy every last one of them first, before they make any other move. Before these cyber-bullying cat-lickers can do anything about it to try to destroy and waste everyone\'s lives even more than they already have with their disease-infested invasive-species vermin cats. Not quite the results that these sociopathic cat-lickers had intended, but that\'s what they\'re getting! :-)
